Eyes Wide Shut
You see this all the time with human photos. First time for me with my fish buddies. Secretary blenny in a full-on blink. Inset shows next shot with eyes open. Then again... I guess maybe I see the point of closing those eyes! ...

The view of sunset during our dinner after a day of diving. Hand-held panorama with my daughter's pocket camera. This one had them lined up at the rails in the restaurant taking photos.

Cling-fish on a gorgonian. 4 mm or less in length. Nikon 105 with Subsee 5X. 1/250; f22. Thanks to Katie, with Indigo Divers, for teaching me how to find this great little subject while I learn to use my 5x.

Juvenile decorator crab. 1/125; f32; Nikon 105 and Subsee 5X. The adults of this species are covered with so much growth, they are hard to even recognize. Who knew such a beautiful, colorful creature was under that stuff?

Froggie Nest. This is a group of four frog fish inside the wheelhouse of a wreck. Largest (orange, up and right) was a two-foot long fish. Tail of one is orange and to the left. Shot from several feet away with 105 macro.

This octopus actually came out of hiding on the reef and began to put on a fantastic color display that the camera couldn't capture, then retreated. I suppose I was too near its abode.
